The guest house is in a quiet location, very convenient for the university. My room was very comfortable and well equipped, with good en suite facilities, and the wifi worked well. The owners made me feel very welcome. Would definitely recommend.

Hi Kate Thank you for your review and Alice and I are pleased that you enjoyed your short stay with us. I understand that you were unable to rate The Jays for value, as your bill was settled by Aberdeen University. However we are glad that the other ratings criteria, were to your satisfaction. Kind regards, Alice and George.

Stayed in a single room which was spotless and well fitted. The desk was particularly much appreciated and often missing from single rooms. En-suite too. And free wi-fi. I could easily have parked on the street around the corner, but The Jays even has a small car park. Breakfast was fine (standard B&B style) and although it's necessary to book...

Very nice place, close to Kings College and not so far from the city centre. Very nice that you have the choice for breakfast. Rooms cozy, a little small, but enough. The walls are a bit thin, could hear the neighbour's bathroom ventilation every night.

Everything was perfect - service, cleanliness, quiteness,... The guest house is very close to the University of Aberdeen, so it is the perfect location to stay if you visit the University. The staff is very kind and the atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed. If I have to visit Aberdeen again, I will go there again!
